Life On and Off an Acreage

In-sights into moving from an Acreage back to Town, plus a few things I find of interest.

Two things that horses are scared about:

1. Things that move
2. Things that don't move

Men's Shelter II

 It's coming along. This is 1/2 of the fire wall between the shelter and the church ready for insulation and dry walling.
 Here is the first half of the fire wall almost completed. It needs 2 layers of 5/8 inch drywall per side. 12 foot panels are real heavy.
Hopefully the second wall of the fire wall will go up at 9 am tomorrow. It gets dropped down 4 feet into the crawl space, then glued to the layer of dry wall then moved out to give 1 inch of air space between the walls. The contractor figures on 15 people to lift and slide into position. The design is such that it will give a 2 hour fire protection. Hopefully, that will never be used! Ideally (in my opinion) it would be paneled on the ground and then lifted, but the 60 foot span is too flimsy to allow that to happen. Who am I to argue with the experts. In the mean time, at 09:00 early, we will do it the hard way.
